Platinum Picnic at Rochester Castle

2nd June - 5th June 2022

Bring a picnic and join the party at Medway’s Platinum Jubilee big screen in Rochester Castle Gardens.

Avoid the capital’s crowds and see the Queen’s Birthday Parade, service of thanksgiving at St. Paul’s Cathedral and Platinum Jubilee Pageant, surrounded by friends and family, with our City’s very own castle as your backdrop.

Sing-along with the orchestra live from Horse Guards Parade and don’t forget your picnic… why not try Coronation chicken with the crusts cut off for a stately sandwich!

  • Queen's Birthday Parade from Horse Guards Parade: 10am, Thursday, 2 June
  • Service of Thanksgiving from St Paul's Cathedral: Friday, 3 June
  • Platinum Party at the Palace: Saturday, 4 June
  • Platinum Jubilee Pageant from London: Sunday, 5 June


A Celebration of Dickens - 4 and 5 June

Events and activities will also take place alongside the big screen picnic site in the castle grounds as a tribute to the queen’s Platinum Jubilee and to commemorate the life and works of Charles Dickens across the Dickens celebratory weekend.
